Subject: “Standards and Repositories: Facilitate Discovery, Adoption
and Use” for RDA COVID-19 WG
Date: Wed, 29 Apr 2020 21:12:19 +0100
From: Susanna-Assunta Sansone

Dear all,
here the draft of “Overarching Standards and Repositories Guidelines:
Facilitate Discovery, Adoption and Use”, which has been extracted from
the adopted recommendations of the joint RDA/Force11 FAIRsharing WG:
Further contribution welcome.
The focus of these guidelines is to facilitate discovery, adoption and
use of standards and repositories. Therefore these guidelines complement
(and do not replace) the specific standards and repositories that are
already recommended in the guidelines of other subgroups.
Thank you to those that have already sent comments; from now on, please,
add to the document using suggestion mode.
Many thanks,
